Trick #1: Tease tease tease
Hair teasing is one of the most underrated methods of styling. If done right, it can boost the volume of your hair like no product can. Simply grab your tail comb or a clean toothbrush to tease your roots. Back comb strands over it and spritz on some hair spray to hold the voluminous look together.
Trick #2: Change your hair parting
If you’ve never imagined yourself parting your hair differently, now is the time to make the big switch. Because that way, you’ll be able to say goodbye to thin hair too! All you need to do is blow dry your hair like you’d normally do, and change your original parting to the opposite side. Flipping it on the other side will make your roots stand up, hence, give the illusion of fuller locks.
Trick #3: Make way for waves
Poker-straight strands can make even the thickest of hair look thin as they lie flat against the head. Therefore, we suggest you either embrace your natural waves or with the help of a curling iron, add some waves to your hair. The added texture will make your thin strands look bouncy and voluminous.
Trick #4: Short layers for the win
Deciding a haircut for thin hair can be tricky! You don’t want your hair to look thinner than it already is, do you? Therefore, for all those with thin hair, it’s ideal to stay away from a blunt cut as that may further weigh your hair down. Instead, opt for layers as it will give your hair shape and movement.
Trick #5: Change your blow out direction
Blow-drying the regular way may not be for you if you have really thin hair. However, the right way of blow-drying can help you achieve a voluminous look. All you need to do is flip your head upside down when it’s still wet and blow-dry. Softly tousle your hair with your fingers once you get to the roots. Doing so will make your roots stand up, thereby creating volume in your hair.
